    Have you thought about sorting the clock out on this website, it always seems to be an hour behind!

    Hello Roy. I refer you to Roger's succinct explanation from another thread:

    I still can't understand that one... we are in the GMT zone after all, not the GMT+1 zone.

    I think the server hasn't adjusted itself for BST.

    Isn't the server in Germany though? I remember when the site was down once, the message it displayed was in German.

    Might have something to do with the difference :?: but not the GMT+1 business!!! :roll:

    Personally I think the clock should be kept to GMT as not everybody on the site resides in the UK, so switching to BST at appropriate times seems a bit parochial.

    Who Cares??!!!!!
    personally i believe the clocks should be kept back
    this means more ttime in bed and in the pub but late for work and we can blame it on tMP!!

    The problem here folks is, I believe, down to the fact that whilst the tMP Master Clock is set at GMT, the actual server/machine where all tMP threads are located is in Germany which is +1h... but if I set tMP Master Clock at GMT-1, all other times would be out.

    Easiest way is as described, simply set your profile time to GMT-1 and all should be OK...
